Jobs prior to becoming a Special Education teacher?
I already have my Bachelor's degree in paralegal studies. I have always wanted to be a special education teacher, but i chose to be a paralegal instead. Now, after working as a paralegal, i know i made the wrong decision and would like to go back to school for special education. Are there any jobs in the profession that i can obtain while i'm in school working toward my degree? I would really like to gain experience working in the field. Preferably in Ohio area. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
